The AD7298 is a 12-bit, high speed, low power, 8-channel,
successive approximation ADC with an internal temperature
sensor. The part operates from a single 3.3V power supply and
features throughput rates up to 1MSPS. The device contains a
low noise, wide bandwidth track-and-hold amplifier that can
handle input frequencies in excess of 70 MHz.
The AD7298 offers a programmable sequencer, which enables
the selection of a pre-programmable sequence of channels for
www.DacotanSvheerseito4nU..cTohme device has an on-chip 2.5 V reference that can be
disabled to allow the use of an external reference.
The AD7298 includes a high accuracy band-gap temperature
sensor, which is monitored and digitized by the12-bit ADC to
give a resolution of 0.25°C. The device offers a 4-wire serial
interface compatible with SPI, and DSP interface standards.
The AD7298 uses advanced design techniques to achieve very
low power dissipation at high throughput rates. The part also
offers flexible power/throughput rate management options. The
part is offered in a 20 lead LFCSP package.
